Despite being absent from the patch notes, Respawn has stealthily rolled out map changes in the Bunker location that will stop players from camping.
Spotted by Twitter user PlayApexESP (via GamesRadar+), the Season 1 update appears to have removed the air con units from above the doors, which acted as handy perch for a one or two players to rain down shots from on high, or for Caustic mains to watch their noxious traps take effect on their victims below.
You can check out where the camping spots used to be in acuriousfeline’s tweet below:
Any Legend could hop up on the top of the units to ambush an enemy or take a breather to recharge shields or heal themselves, but it was Caustic who could get the most entertaining use out of the trick. Apex Legends players by now know that the Bunker is Caustic’s favorite place to go since his gas is so effective there, and the Legend could previously use these spots to gas enemies once they ran in the room while shutting them inside with a trap of his own. It wasn’t a particular viable strategy since it depended on all the enemies getting in one room at the same time while also not noticing Caustic, and even after that, the Legend had to get out in one piece. It being unviable didn’t make it any less entertaining for Caustic players and others who used the units to trick people though, but it seems like that’s no longer an option.
